Just a Thought for September 23September 23, 2015
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NLT).
When we are born-again, God makes us into a new person, but our mind isn’t automatically changed. That part needs transformation. We must change our thinking to conform to God’s way of thinking—Christ’s mind.
So how do we allow God to transform us? “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV).
The mirror is the Word. The whole Word is about Jesus. As we see Jesus, we are transformed. It’s not even something we have to do. It’s just looking at Jesus in the Word.
So don’t try behavior modification to change your thinking, just behold Jesus and you will change right before your eyes.
